Evident in Olympic rule application is something I wrote about mere days ago: the triumph of Muslim absolutism over Western relativism. Whether Muslims are right or wrong in a given instance, they’re sure of themselves in every instance. They don’t capitulate, waver, or apologize. They’re brazen. And Westerners? They’re craven. Even the values they profess most — brotherhood, tolerance, sensitivity, open-mindedness, antipathy for discrimination — are situational. Like athletes, these values are subject to expulsion when inconvenient.

Senator Rand Paul began with a story that got a huge laugh from standing-room-only crowd at FreedomFest. “As you may know,” he said, “I have sort of a love/hate relationship with the TSA.” He paused and then added, “Well, let’s be honest. It’s more of a hate/hate relationship.”

Dog Days movieThe latest installment of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, Dog Days, proves to be an entertaining film, particularly for avid readers of the graphic novels (fictional stories that are presented in comic-strip format and published as books).

Liberals are no strangers to using children to relate political messages, as the 2008 videos of kids singing for and paying homage to Obama prove. And conservatives certainly complained — about brainwashing and using children. Yet I don’t remember any of them wishing that they could snuff the life out of the youngsters. Heck, I can’t even recall any who wished death upon the adults manipulating the kids. That’s a brand of bloodthirsty rage confined, seemingly, to the Left.

One of the reasons why we know so much about Humanistic Psychology today is because of the defection of one of its major practitioners, Dr. William Coulson, a former colleague of Carl Rogers and Abraham Maslow. He testified how fraudulent the Encounter Movement was as science and how destructive it was in practice.
